    Just tighten the pivot bolt a bit more, inserts are proud of cast iron pcs by maybe 1/16" or more.

    I also have never understood why saws are built at such a low profile. Must be $$$
    It is mostly for roll/conveyor height below osha tie off requirements so you can walk on the bunks.
    safety snail says never walk on bunks, but WHEN you do, no need to tie off!

    Nice simple setup on the rod work. Next you'll be looking at jamming one of these in the shop.

    I'd sell you mine but I could never part with it....
    That thing looks pretty darn slick.......I'll have to keep my eye out for one of those...............most units nowadays are scissor types, leaving you with deformed cut edges.

    Type of part I'd chop saw in bundles(electrical tape works great), bend, clamp 10-20 at a time in a fixture and mill both ends to length in one setup.

    Years ago I had to make thousands of small stainless pins, made a small hand shear with a tight hardened bushing the material came out of and a knife shape to barely deform the material at all and was banging out about 800pc/hr feeding 6' lengths into it. Later on modified it to do another type of flat stock material, was real slick there too.

    Looks like only one maincon upgrade. And, it is probably $18k out of pocket when it is all said & done.

    Late last summer I installed the Haas Factory remote battery kit on my SL20. No big deal............. Right after the battery swap out, the machine would randomly power down and then power back up. No rhyme or rhythm to it...........I thought there might be a loose wire or loose connection from when I pulled the boards to replace the battery. Checked everything. Problem still persisted. Haas told me to put in a new low voltage power source. Swapped that out and still shuttin' down. And very random too. It would run a week and not problems and then it would shut down a few times a day.

    Then I swap out my battery on the VF2...............well that turn into a nightmare in a blink of an eye. As I was putting the sheet metal cover over the boards, the wire on the remote batter pack got snagged and unplugged........... SON OF A [email protected]$#H!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dead processor. Had Worldwide down in GA check the boards over(completely loosing power can sometimes damage the processor) and they told me they were fine. Haas tech came out installed the boards, loaded parameters and software. When he left on a Friday, the mill was up and running................come Monday morning it ran fine. The next day too.........then it shut down and rebooted? WTH? Fluke? 20 minutes later.....shut down and reboot? Oh, hell no!!!!

    Haas tech was out again a week later(they are so far behind)...................determines the processors took a dump. Can't explain why or how, but he said same thing happened on a lathe a year or so ago. He swapped batteries and the machine started to shut down and reboot.....................

    Well this week both hunks of iron got updated controls. About $15k in overpriced parts and a half a day labor for each machine.

    Full of warm fuzzy feelings about Haas?

    Is the new control at least better in some way?
